ABOUT THE TUTOR ROLE

Tutors are placed in public elementary, middle, and high schools to provide support to students and teachers. Tutors may serve as circulating classroom assistants, lead a small group, or provide individual support during regular school hours. Once placed in a partner school, tutors are directed by the principal and site coordinator for the duration of the contracted period. This is typically the academic year and follows the district calendar of September/October through June. Our tutors work shifts of at least 3 hours at a time for approximately 15-25 hours per week during the school day (typically between 8am and 3pm), depending on placement. Availability at least 3 days a week is preferred.
